    Okay, so let me start off by saying I've

    suffered from depression for the best part of 10 years. I started self harming when I was 12, and that led into many years of suicide attempts, binge drinking, various forms of self destruction, and a whole lot of denial. When I was 16, it hit it's peak, I don't even really...

    . so as I said, my flatmate (double my age) is in a relationship with this guy. We study together so we're basically inseparable when we first met and she was single. Obviously when she got her boyfriend we drifted apart, which doesn't bother me as she is pretty intense and...
